Added DiffLines:

* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: According to Jacin he taught himself to put all his emotions and thoughts aside during duty in order to not attract attention - since guards are expected to be "brainless puppets" that are supposed to be easily controlled.

* RaisedByGrandparents: Scarlet, since she was seven.

to:

* PostRapeTaunt: A near-miss, but the trope gets a nod when [[spoiler:Wolf's brother Ran]] mentions thinking about raping Scarlet in order to taunt Wolf about it afterwards. He claims he finds the idea of intercourse with a human too repugnant, however, so he decides to skip straight to killing her.
* RaisedByGrandparents: Scarlet, since Scarlet came to live with her grandmother when she was seven.

Added DiffLines:

* KidsAreCruel: Helped along by FantasticRacism - apparently it's a fairly common practice for members of the Lunar nobility to keep captive Earthens for their children to practice their glamour on. [[spoiler:Scarlet]] spends some time this way after being abducted to Luna, and the little monster in question chiefly seems to enjoy tormenting her with visions of vermin [[BodyHorror invading her body]].

* BelligerentSexualTension: Scarlet and Wolf.

to:

* BelligerentSexualTension: Scarlet and Wolf. For just one example, Scarlet resorts to actually winging Wolf's arm with a bullet to make him back off of killing [[spoiler:Ran]], after failing to get through to him by any other means. This act seems to impress Wolf immensely.

Added DiffLines:

* BondVillainStupidity: Averted with most thaumaturges, who tend to go straight for the kill, but Queen Levana has an unfortunate habit of succumbing to this when the main characters are involved.

** Sybil, one of Levana's minions, who keeps Cress locked away in a satalite that orbits Earth. She is responsible for bringing Cress food and water and is the closest thing to a mother than Cress has ever known. Thankfully by the time we meet her, Cress has long since learned that "Mistress Sybil" is a WickedStepmother.
